Chris Doyle coming through with a banger of an episode for the latest Palaver Podcast. This time around he sits down with Jerry Bagley to talk about his wild ride from how he got into BMX to making a ton of money as a Pro rider and having one of the top selling BMX bikes to losing it all and having to get his life back on track. This is nearly 2 hours long and it’s a real good listen. Hit play and take this all in.
“A natural on a BMX bike, Jerry Bagley rode a wave of success as a top ten dirt jumper at a time when BMX dirt jumping was at its peak. Jerry’s professionalism on and off the bike landed him some of the most high profile sponsors in the modern era – case & point, Jerry was the first North American athlete to represent Red Bull. True to his nature, Jerry doesn’t hold back his feelings, and speaks openly and honestly about the payoffs and pitfalls of his professional BMX career. Enjoy!
